Round It Up for NOFA-NH Farm Share Program in September

The Monadnock Food Co-op will launch a month-long Round It Up Donation Drive to benefit the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Hampshire (NOFA-NH) Farm Share Program on September 1, 2022. The Co-op’s Round It Up program empowers shoppers to make positive changes in their community by donating their change to local community organizations.

Also, NOFA-NH and NOFA-VT have come together to launch a Farm Share crowdfunding campaign on The Local Crowd Monadnock — meaning there are TWO ways to support this program in September!

The NOFA-NH’s Farm Share Program provides limited-income New Hampshire residents with discounted Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares, also known as farm shares. The program benefits children, families, and seniors by connecting low-income individuals with certified organic farms to provide a season’s worth of local farm-fresh products at a reduced cost.

Since 2017, the Farm Share Program has partnered with 15 certified organic farms to provide over 535 low-income NH residents with 167 subsidized farm shares. Participating farms in the Monadnock Region have included Abenaki Springs Farm in Walpole, Picadilly Farm in Winchester, and Stonewall Farm in Keene.

“NOFA-NH believes that everyone has a right to nutritious, healthy food,” said Nikki Kolb, NOFA-NH Operations Director. “We’re proud to support New Hampshire’s organic farmers by making high-quality local food accessible to community members in need. Funds raised by the Monadnock Food Co-op are critical to ensuring that children, families, seniors, and other low-income individuals across the state can receive a season’s worth of farm-fresh, organic produce through NOFA-NH’s Farm Share Program.”
